Shore is Great Beer!

Shore Craft Beer, Worcester County Tourism, and the Tri-County Council are bringing together the decision-makers, the professionals, and the activists who will gather to brainstorm on making the shore a national Top 10 craft beer destination. The Craft Beer Summit will focus on the shore communities in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.  Representatives from each state will be on hand comparing and contrasting marketing ideas, legislative issues, economic development, and more.
Whether you are a legislator or a brewer, a hotel or restaurant owner, a liquor store or a tour company owner, the world class beer and world class beauty on the shore makes a difference to your business. Come learn about our craft beer, how tourism surrounding craft beer matters, how legislation matters, and how we can work together to grow business on the shore.
The Craft Beer Summit will be held on September 8 at EVO Public House in Salisbury, and lunch is available for purchase at EVO before the summit. A free shuttle from Ocean City departs the West OC Park and Ride at noon. A free craft beer and lite fare food pairing begins at 4:00 p.m. with a shuttle back to Ocean City departing at 5:00 p.m. If you’d like further details, email Ann Hillyer at

Limes are key!
Ocean City’s original craft beer, Fin City, unveiled its Bimini Key brew this summer, and it has proven to be the perfect warm weather sipper. Infused with key limes, this beverage is brewed on the premises of Hooper’s Crab House, which will be the location of the 9th Annual Brews on the Beach Shore Craft Beer Fest. The festival takes place on Saturday, September 9 beginning at noon. Featuring over 30 styles of local craft beer, live music, and food, this event has grown to be a local’s favorite.
